Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
Our Father in Heaven,
This day we humble ourselves and ask your forgiveness for our sins against You
alone. We are weak and fallen creatures needing Your divine touch of restoration.
We have engaged in combat against an enemy instead of following your direction
to love one another.
More of us are now awakening to the fact that we are fighting against ourselves.
These are our brothers and sisters with whom we have a momentary disagreement
over an issue or a candidate. Lord, empower us with Your Spirit to fulfill Your will
for each of us.
Forgive us for failing to believe Your Word affirming that You and You alone raise
up kings and remove kings. Forgive us for not trusting Your promise that You
indeed work ALL things together for good for those who love You and are called
according to Your purposes.
Father, bring each of us to our knees with sorrow for offending You. Grace us with
Your Spirit that we may trust again. We live to please you now here on earth and
forever more in Paradise with You face to face.
Bless our patriots, our military and all our families. Bless those now serving in
elected office throughout our land. Bless all of the men and women running for
elected office this year. And grant us Your strength that we may walk worthy before
You and our fellow man; that observers will be compelled to ask, why we are so
different from others in the political marketplace to which You have called everyone
sharing in this prayer.
In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

Christmas day is almost here. I love the season, the lights, the trees, the smells, the cold temperatures, the family gatherings and the food. But Christmas is about Christ. It is about a lost and found mission motivated by love. We were lost and…Continue
Wisdom can come from unlikely places. Eric Hofer, a California longshoreman turned educator, reminds us that "You can never have enough of what you don't really need." Christmas, contaminated with westernized commercialization, has confused us as to…Continue
I can't help thinking this is God's retribution for the deadly decisions being made by California authorities, the disgusting not guilty decision in SF. We've seen this going on for some time but I can't be the only one who has noticed these…Continue
